What a bold beer! Right from the get go I knew I would enjoy this one. It poured a light amber color with a great fluffy white head. The aroma of citrus and spice was in full force and smelled absolutly wonderful. To say this beer is hoppy would be an understatement...it is VERY hoppy. But this is a good thing because it is still very smoothe. Mouthfeel was perfect, and the taste was great. It had a bit of a pine taste at the beginning, then as it hit my tounge it flavors opened up and revealed a very spicy flavor, and finished with a little alchohol warmth. This reminded me a lot of Arrogant Bastard, but with more of a spicy flavor. This is a great beer and now they make it in six packs....awesome!!

Pours a pale hazy golden yellow with a frothy white head fading to clumpy bubbles leaving a nice oily lacing.

Smell is very nice, clean grassy hops with a nice citrus grapefruit overtone with a touch of honey too.

Flavor is very good, lemony hops nicely balanced with a pale malt background. A bit tart and pleasanlty bitter with a mild grapefruit taste and a tad of resin. Very refreshing (of course I just came in from working in the garden so I could practically gulp this down!)

Mouthfeel is light, smooth and moderately carbonated.

Drinkability is very good, this may become my go to Summer IPA. I wish I had bought more than just the the one to review!

A great, flavorful IPA that is packed with flavor like a double but still very dinkable. Pours out hazy, thick amber, golden with a touch of orange. Head rolls up and recedes into a thick ring. Stays with you the whole way through. The smell is a strong, but balanced aroma with a very strong hop foundation and a sweet, malty backbone. The Flavor is that of a very strong, floral hop, with a nice crisp citrus finish. Beneath it all a very sweet, but balancing malt character rounds it out nicely. Refreshing carbonation, but with a respectable heft on the mouth. Active but short-lived combination. All around great IPA that's easy to enjoy at any time, and more proof that Stone just makes thoroughly flavorful beers.
